CORAL have received a flood of bets for Louis van Gaal becoming next Manchester United manager after reports suggest David Moyes will be sacked before the weekend.
The Holland boss, who steps down after the World Cup finals, is 5-1 joint favourite along with Dortmund’s Jurgen Klopp to be the new man in charge at Old Trafford.
Van Gaal seems to be the man United want and that will become clear as the price continues to drop.
Sir Alex Ferguson, who retired from the job at the end of last season, is 6-1 to make a sensational return, but there's no chance of that happening.
Ryan Giggs, who is part of the current coaching squad and who will be put in charge for the rest of the season, is 12-1 with Coral but again isn't worth a bet.
Coral spokesman John Hill said: “The interest in the next Manchester United manager market suggests some big news is about to break. The two names who have been popular today are Louis van Gaal and Jugen Klopp.”
Coral prices: 5-1 Louis Van Gaal, Jurgen Klopp, 6-1 Sir Alex Ferguson, 9-1 Diego Simeone, 12-1 Ryan Giggs, 16-1 Laurent Blanc, 20-1 Antonio Conte, Pep Guardiola, 25-1 Carlo Ancelotti, Fabio Capello, 33-1 Gary Neville, Jose Mourinho, Michael Laudrup, 50-1 Steve Bruce.
